Led by our world-renowned faculty, our curriculum incorporates their groundbreaking research, entrepreneurial spirit, and emphasis on experience-based learning. As part of the University of Pittsburgh, our students and faculty enjoy an abundance of opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration. Our leadership network spans the globe: 23,000 Katz alumni live in more than 90 countries. Through our Career Management Center, we build partnerships with leading companies and assist students in realizing their full career potential. We consider the City of Pittsburgh as more than our address; it defines us, as we share its spirit of resiliency and collaboration. Established in 1960, but with history dating to 1907, Katz is the first school to offer a one-year MBA (1963) and among the first to offer an Executive MBA (1972). We believe that success favors the agile, which is why we immerse students in real-world experiences so they graduate ready to build, lead, and contribute immediately.
